First domestic Turkish plane to take flight in 2014
Turkey’s first domestically produced plane will take flight in 2014, the head of the Turkish Aviation Board (THK) has said, according to daily Hürriyet.
Some 90 percent of the materials to be used in the new plane will be produced in Turkey, Osman Yıldırım said.
A THK plane production facility will open in May, according to Yıldırım, whose board has been responsible for hosting aeronautical events and conducting training all over Turkey.
Last year, the board opened a special aviation university, THK University.
